Inspired by some of my favorite fitness Queens, I created a killer kettlebell workout to share!
One reason I love kettlebells is they always bring a dynamic workout. Cardio and strength combined in one. I’m a big fan! Plus a lot of time I’m just using one piece of equipment instead of a variety of free weights.
My set of kettlebells are a Jillian Michael’s product gifted from my Mom one Christmas. This set and this set on Amazon look like a dead replicas minus saying Jillian Michaels. There are many kinds out there, most are metal. Some have neoprene or a coating on them. This set is plastic and probably a little larger than the solid cast models. I’ve had my set since 2012 and they’ve held up great.
The elements of today’s workout are multistep. These moves are complex and take a lot of core strength to perform. They should be down with control. Do not rush through these! Don’t be afraid to try them either. Push yourself girl. See what you can do on the other side of the line.
There are 8 DYNAMIC EXERCISES. We are going to complete 12 REPS of each- or 6 per side where applicable. For instance, we’ll do 12 reps of Squat Row Halo, but on the Twist Swing we’ll twist 6 reps to the right then 6 times to the left for a total of 12 repetitions. Next we are going to repeat all eight moves two more times for a total of 3 ROUNDS. Should take you about 30-35 MINUTES to complete!
You might be scratching your head thinking “what is a squat row halo?” In my workout guide below I break down each move with a description on how to perform. I’m just like the fitness magazine’s ya’lll!
If you are a visual person, I have uploaded a short 1 minute video going through the exercises. You can find the video on my Instagram feed or on my IGtv channel! Yes, that’s right. I went ahead and got crazy with having both YouTube and an IGtv channel. Go show me some love friends.
As always if you have any questions, holler at me! I’m happy to give recommendations if a move isn’t working for you. If you do this workout (or any of my workouts!) please tag me in your sweatfie with #sisFitness so I can cheer on your success!
No tricks about it- a little halloween HIIT is the workout you need to do before treating tonight! Happy Halloween babes! My kids are so excited for tonight- and I am too! We usually have a few other kiddos over to join us for Beggar’s night. We have chili and cornbread before hitting up our hood. I picked these pumpkin placemats for the dinner table tonight. How cute are they? The little’s and I made a banner to hang up too. Add some apple cider mules and we are all set! I knew my day was going to be packed […]
It is Thanksgiving week! The feast we eat this Thursday is my favorite meal of the year. I do not hesitate to indulge in all the potatoes, stuffing and pies- oh and the wine! After all it is a meal only made once a year and I am all about balance. With that being said, Thanksgiving should not be a day to skip out on a workout. Even a small one will make you feel better about wishing you wore elastic waist pants later that day! This year I am going to do this Thanksgiving Day Parade Workout I created in […]
It is PSL season after all- let’s have a little workout pun fun! This quick workout will work arms, core and legs.. oh the legs. Full disclosure, I have totally fallen off the motivational wagon and have slipped on making it to my workouts. I am working on adjusting my focus to the long term effects/goals of a fit lifestyle instead of the quick obtainable ones like fitting back into a fair pair of jeans. For some reason Lil Miss has wanted to party for a few hours every night around 2:30am. This Mama is tired and has hit snooze […]
Hi friends! How are we doing with the first week of the 2017 SiS Spring into Summer Shape Up? I’m looking forward to hitting the mat tomorrow and stretch out! I will admit these workouts are challenging but I designed them to kick some booty!! If you need modifications just ask! I’m happy to dial down a routine to fit your needs. I’m in the market for some crop workout pants now that it’s spring! These are my favorite high rise crop pants and happen to be $35 with a sports bra purchase! I also really love this mesh crop pant […]
I’ve had my blog up for almost a month and I’m long overdue sharing a fitness post! This is Style in Shape- Fashion and Fitness for less afterall and that fitness category is empty! But guys, let me tell you- it’s a lot harder than it looks. To the seasoned fitness bloggers out there- bravo! You make this ish look not akward and totally embarassing. Or maybe it’s just me that is akward and embarassing but you know what? I’m sharing anyway. It’s a killer workout. Some of my moves are modified and my range of motion is no where how […]
